Memorial Day Weekend is Here! What to Wear

It’s hard to believe but we are already at Memorial Day weekend! If you’re like us and are constantly caught off guard by the rapid pace of time, we’ve got your Memorial Day style covered. Still haven’t planned what to wear? Check out a few of our favorite Memorial Day looks for the long weekend.

Memorial Day Weekend Weather

The weather looks like it will be partly cloudy with highs in the high 60s. Sounds like paradise to us locals.

Memorial Day Style

Simply Sweet
One of our favorite looks for a Memorial Day celebration is the classic simple summer dress. This Ulla Johnson dress is stunning, comfortable, and perfect for a backyard BBQ. As the temperatures cools down into the evening, pair with your favorite white or blue denim jacket. Bonus, this dress has pockets!
Wearing: Ulla Johnson Citra Dress | Beek Seabird Sandal

Memorial Day Style

Love of Layers
What’s more fun than layering? Layering may seem like a little bit of a challenge, but to us, it’s just another opportunity to wear as much of our favorite pieces as possible. This versatile jacket is a great summer snag. It is light and can be tossed over your spring and summer wardrobe with ease and style. Add a little extra to any casual outfit with subtle sparkle and some killer accessories.
Wearing: The Great Sergeant Jacket | Tee Lab Layering Tank | Tee Lab Pink Skirt | Ancient Greek Metallic Sandals | Peanut Wood Ring

Memorial Day Style

Summertime Sunshine
We know that “partly cloudy” means not quite warm enough to get away without a jacket all day. But we also know that Memorial Day is the official kick off to summer. So we’re dressing the part. Laid back and ready for sunshine, we’re loving these jean shorts paired with an easy top, and the Yosuzi bag and hat.
Wearing: R13 Denim Shorts | Veronica Beard Silk Tank | Ancient Greek Black Slide Sandals | Jewels By Piper Bone Necklace | Yosuzi Hat | Yosuzi Kasha Bag

Memorial Day Style

Classic Cool
They say you’re not supposed to wear white before Memorial Day. We don’t really agree with that (who doesn’t love their winter whites?!), but we’re willing to play along. It’s officially time to rock that white denim all summer long. Pair with a cute clutch and patterned top to add a little extra something to your style.
Wearing: Nili Lotan Cleo Blouse | *NEW* 6397 Shorty Jean | Robert Clergerie Slide |
*NEW* Jerome Dreyfuss Clutch

Summer Style: Where are you going? What will you wear?

Summer planning is well underway. We’ve started planning our trips, camps, and activities of all sorts for the summer. But, have we spent any time thinking about what we will wear? Okay, we admit it, we have thought about it, a lot. And we’re excited to show you our staff picks for 2018 summer style!

Bike Ride the Brewery Summer Style

BIKE RIDE TO THE BREWERY
Is there anything that says summer in Seattle more than a easy bike ride to a brewery? Jen doesn’t think so. Biking to the brewery the ideal combination of exercise, sunshine, and ice cold refreshment. No matter if you’re into hops, reds, blondes, or porters, there’s nothing better than a beer (and a burger, maybe?) in the sunshine after a long bike ride. Who’s coming?
Wearing: Veronica Beard Ines Denim, Tee Lab by Frank and Eileen Knit Button Up Top layered over a White Tank Top, and Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Superstars 

No matter if you’ve planned an exotic vacation this summer or you’re planning on staying home and enjoying the beautiful Seattle sunshine, dressing for summer is half the fun. Celebrate the return of the sun with a new wardrobe or at least a new outfit! We’re here to help you find the perfect look for your summer style.

Brighten Your Summer with Lots of Prints!

Wearing a cardigan and a thin scarf, freezing woman Melissa Cady, 34, reportedly walked to work in frigid temperatures today following her decision that it is spring now. “The date is April 8 and it is now springtime and it is beautiful out,” said the shivering, coatless woman as a gust of cold air blasted into her face. “Winter is over. The seasons have changed. I am happy and warm now.” Sources said the woman spent her lunch hour walking along Lake Michigan, vigorously rubbing her hands together and blowing into them.” — The Onion

Melissa, you’re our spirit animal. Even as we’re still struggling through the last few rains of our Seattle spring, summer clothes with lots of prints remind us that warmer days are on the horizon. If you’re like Melissa, you’ve decided that spring is here, no matter what the weather is doing and that means it’s time to shop for and wear spring and summer clothes.

So, what to wear? We’ve been reviewing the looks from Paris Fashion Week and it’s clear that head-to-toe prints are trending this summer. We’re so on board.

Celebrate the Fourth of July in Style

We are just under a week away from another great Fourth of July celebration in Seattle!

Since Seattle is so far north, our summer days have more hours of sunlight and our Fourth of July celebrations are extra long as we wait for the sun to go down far enough to watch fireworks against a dark starry sky. In Seattle, the Fourth of July is considered the official start. We’ve been patient, and from here on out, the weather should be high seventies without a cloud in the sky. Sounds like a reason to celebrate, to me.

To get ready for our long evening of celebrating, we’ve picked out a few of our favorite red, white, and blue Fourth of July BBQ-ready outfits. Plus, if you’re planning to take a long weekend to celebrate, you may want to look at packing a few extra looks to start the partying in style early. We’ve got you covered for Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and, of course, the Fourth of July!

We’ve all heard the “joke” that Seattle summers start on the July 5th, but this year, the forecast is looking sunny with no rain! Let’s keep our fingers crossed it stays positive and sunny throughout the weekend.

So, here’s to good weather, good company, good food, and lots of fireworks. It’s time to kick off the Seattle summer with an incredible Fourth of July extra long weekend!

Here Comes the Sun: Summer Style Must-Haves

You know what they say, summer in Seattle doesn’t really start until July 5th. Honestly, we’re hoping for a start to summer sooner than that if for no other reason than that we have so many adorable outfits we are dying to wear. But mostly because summer in Seattle is one of the best in the country. According to a recent study, Seattle has some of the best beach weather in the country (even if for just a few months). For those few beautiful months, we have mild to high heat, low humidity, and cool evenings. And we’re surrounded by water, everywhere, from the Sound to Lake Washington to Lake Sammamish. Plus, the water is cool and perfect for swimming or boating. Have you noticed how many delicious ice cream places we have? Molly Moons, Blue Bird, Full Tilt, just to name a few. The best part? It doesn’t rain in the summer.

Summer in Seattle is something to be celebrated. We’re preparing for the sunny weather ahead by picking out a few of our favorite summer looks for 2017. Come by and find your summer looks in store, or don’t brave the weather and check out our great summer styles online.

Bright Summer Whites

Can we first just say how happy we are that we don’t have to follow these “no whites before Memorial Day. No whites after Labor Day” rules any more? Winter whites have been a welcome addition to our dark grey, green, brown, black winter wardrobes. We are more than happy to extend white’s season beyond the sunniest of summer days. Still, white is a classic summer color. It could be called THE color of summer. How can we separate white from memories of beaches, big floppy hats, mimosas in the sunshine, and lots of seafood? It’s always part of our ideal summer picture.

In celebration of all things summer, we’re getting out our sunglasses and cocktails a little early this year and picking out our favorite summer whites.
